Once you start browsing you’re sucked in.. It’s easy to start, but painful to stop. Each artist, each project, showcases different methods of creativity. It’s like viewing hundreds of DIY’s, which turn out to be ICDT’s (“I can’t do that’s”). Projects range from photorealism oil paintings, to interactive media apps for mobile devices, to design concepts for the New York Times online site. The possibilities are endless! My favorite part is the “work in progress” (WIP) option, which allows artists to post their progress with a project. If an artist is struggling with their next move, viewers can comment on the WIP and provide suggestions moving forward. Artists usually comment back expressing their thanks for the outsiders’ fresh idea.
The site is easy to use, well designed and easy to browse. Behance does a phenomenal job of drawing the user in by providing simple headers for navigation, showing high def photo teasers, providing browsing category options and more. My favorite is the “Most Appreciated” tab, where Behance presents the current top most liked projects in the world.
The Behance online community is a safe place for artists to gather. Not only does it provide a likeminded environment for artsy creators, it focuses on encouraging peers to critique artwork. Equipped with like buttons, comment options, and page view tracking, Behance acts as an online support system for creative minds looking for honest feedback.
